Irish Stock Exchange publishes review of 2014
The Irish Stock Exchange (ISE) has published its review of 2014, during which the ISE consolidated its position as a leading global centre for debt and funds listings and three new IPOs raised a combined total of €484m for companies listing on the ISE.
“This was a landmark year for the Irish Stock Exchange. We added over 7,000 new debt listings and 1,600 new fund classes during 2014, finishing the year with more than 32,000 securities, representing over 4,500 issuers located in 85 countries.”
Transactions in the Irish equity market grew by 30pc in 2014, maintaining the ISE’s position as the dominant pool of liquidity for Irish equities.
“The ISE’s successful transition into a public limited company during 2014 reflects the ambitious, diverse international business the ISE has become,” added Somers.
“Our new structure will complement our strategy of becoming the No 1 EU exchange for global fixed income, funds and Irish securities by 2018.”
